Greek Yogurt + Whey
I just discovered this. I hate yogurt, largely due to the texture. A friend turned me onto greek yogurt, which i usually mix with granola. The thicker texture makes it a lot more palatable to me, and it's also packed with protein.
1 cup greek yogurt + 1 scoop whey (any flavor)
It's kind of like pudding, maybe a little thicker. It's a kick ass desert that is also really healthy (if you opt for a low-fat or fat-free greek yogurt).
I use fat-free, and it comes out to 44g protein, 0g fat and 8g carbs

I was mixing my greek yogurt with BCAAs like Purple Wrath and others.
Then eating Kroger's carbmasters with ATW...cinnamon bun was by far the best with any flavor.

The Capt was always wary of the Greeks and their boy-loving ways, however does appreciate their good yoghurt.

another use for greek yogurt..
add a organic or natural onion soup mix to 1 cup and mix together..let sit in fridge for 2 hours..makes a awsome dip for fresh veggies

I like plain with either pb choc XF whey with some natural PB mixed in or ATW cinnamon bun with some sunflower butter mixed in. I like the veggie dip idea too

Greek yogurt is a great food on so many levels and adding in some WP only makes it that much better.

Interesting... I picked up a couple cups of this stuff yesterday, they sell a Dannon brand of it at the local grocery store for $1 a cup. Got the one with strawberries on the bottom...the nutritional profile is a hell of a lot better than the regular yogurt I see all the time, I'll definitely be considering trying this mixed with some whey as a PWO.

I like to keep these on hand for snacks, but for some reason greek yogurt gives me wicked heartburn.
